The country hall of famer is known for songs like For the Good Times, Crazy Arms and City Lights. At age 80, he still tours, performing in more than 100 concerts a year.  

"I'm fighting for real country music, and I'm going to do it as long as I can," said Ray Price. "I'm going to stay with it until they start playing good music again. Not rock and roll. Something for the people. It's story songs."   When he's not on stage performing, Price stays on his farm in Mount Pleasant. Tonight, he sand in Caldwell Auditorium in Tyler.
